Kristen Edens is a content and branding expert for businesses. The company she initially began to provide freelance copywriting has now evolved to offer a multitude of writing services that help boost brands and audience awareness. Edens also provides coaching for new entrepreneurs and other small business clients that need help building content strategies and shaping business direction. At a very young age, I started writing down my dreams. I enjoyed that so much, I decided I wanted to be a writer when I grew up. I had the support of family until it came time to go to college. I was lovingly advised to pursue something more lucrative because, “You can’t make a living off of writing.” I ended up getting a master’s degree in exercise physiology. I put a lot of money into that. It took me 10 years to find a job. Even then, it was barely above minimum wage. Though I loved my career choice, there was no way I would be able to reach the financial independence I was after.
